Nivi's Adventures

Transient. Again.

Well just to keep you guys in the loop, tomorrow is the day my working holiday visa expires... So Friday was my last day at work and I return to the state of transient... I do have another visa application in with the home office, but who know if/when that'll get approved so in the meantime I figure it's time for a bit of adventuring...

Watch this space!

PS I snapped this photo on Hackney Rd, East London, on the walk home from my birthday brunch in Clerkenwell... I liked this 'art' from the moment I saw it, little did I know it would be me so soon!

My friend Nav had a colleague Matt, who's currently seconded to the Milan office. Matt's only in Milan for another month so invited Nav +1 (ie me!) along for a weekend. I jumped at the chance - I'm always keen for travel where possible, especially when there's a pseudo local about to show you the best haunts!

Statue of Leonardo

The doors on the duomo

Which on closer inspection is actually brass!

Idea of scale

A very cool scultpure thingy in a square

A saturday morning trip to Desenzato, a little hamlet on the coast of Lago di Garda.

Niv & Nav

Typical Milan streetscape

And what a way to wrap up a wonderful weekend! Gelato (PS the one the right isn't mine!)
